it was hauptmann he met at the cemetery and not someone who looked like john knoll or had a malformed thumb. so whom did condon really meet? if it was bruno hauptmann, then john knoll is not cemetery john. but there might be a more reliable source than condon to prove knoll was part of the plot. the kidnappers communicated with lindbergh through a series of 15 handwritten ransom notes. although some appear as though written by different authors the prosecution's handwriting experts determined they were penned by one person. and that writer was hauptmann. they compared the notes to letters hauptmann wrote to a mrs. begg. just as today, they focused on individual letter shapes the spacing between words, and the way letter pairs like "th" are made. in addition to these physical comparisons they pointed out that the notes were written as if by an immigrant. this is the first ransom note that was left in the nursery. "we warn you from making anyding public or for notify the police." it's an odd way of writing. the "dear sir" ends with an exclamation point. the dollar sign is put afte
, john kerry. and yet in the financial times as we do this interview it is hillary clinton and the questions she faced about the death of our ambassador and others in benghazi and her warning to an administration and her successor in the financial times headlines about mali. clinton fears a new haven. does he anticipate for north africa in a way he couldn't have anticipated when he comes into office is now unstable, think about tunisia, egypt, libya. and there's a great deal of potential for an al qaeda 3.0 to really take root and become a major problem for this administration. >> i think that it's a real concern. there's real reason why secretary of state clinton said it as kind of a parting warning because al qaeda is filling in the empty spaces. and with the revolution in libya, the incredible arms flow there, al qaeda people who've been trained in afghanistan and come back to the ma greb and able to -- pretty much with impunity. for the united states it hasn't been an area of vital interest ever. it's much closer to europe. it's much more of concern to europe than it ha

. host: senator john mccain yesterday at the bipartisan press conference, talking about why he thinks members of his party should get behind the proposal. caller -[video clip] >> the republican party is losing the support of the disparate regions of the hispanic citizens. this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. i think that over the years, republicans in particular, but also democrats and all of our citizens have realize the reality of what all of my colleagues just stated. we cannot continue as a nation with 11 million people residing in the shadows. we have to address the issue and it has to be done in a bipartisan fashion. if we do succeed, and i think that we will, it will be a testimony -- testimonial to the efforts of ted kennedy from years ago, which laid the groundwork for this agreement. this agreement has very little difference from that legislation that was brought by senator kennedy some years ago. host: john mccain of arizona, speaking yesterday. anita, new york, independent line. caller: it may be different in new york city, but why do these politicians assume tha

to know how has john mccain can question this man like he is not too good. another thing, they are only doing this because of who the president is. they are open with that. host: we will leave it there. guest: i think john mccain -- i think what you see is a real passion for the issues that he was questioning him about. he is a passionate man. he is someone who cares deeply and that was evident yesterday. i think he is someone who takes things personally and very much to heart. and again, the iraq war was something he felt acutely and was very outspoken on and has been throughout the execution of that war. i think you could see that yesterday. host: she is a senior adviser for the center for studies. if you want to watch senator hagel's hearing in total, i invite you to go to our c-span video library at www.c- span.org. thank you very much. coming up, it is our regular look at america by the numbers. they will look at how americans across the country are doing financially. we will be right back. >> my cartoons depict native humor. when i first started this cartoon, they were native cha

, as i said to you and as john said, the reviews have largely been successful. they have been pretty glowing. i've heard people say it's a great device. there are others who are going to say i don't care. it doesn't have samsung written on it or one of these on the back, one of the apple logos and at the end of the day that's all that matters. >> i don't know there aren't that many people. apple and samsung, a lot of purists that want to stay there. i feel at this point it's a little too late. nothing stands out or is really fantastic about this device. people who went to the iphone would think about going back because they may have been frustrated with the keyboard on ios, a really good keyboard on the blackberry 10 but i don't know if it's enough to bring back the masses of people they need to rebuild themselves as a company >> you like it but don't think it's a game-changer? >> absolutely. need to come out with a big blockbuster and what they have is a nice phone, really nice in every regard but not really a standout in any way. michael copeland, what's your take? >> this remains
shootings or not? "outfront," cnn's john avlon, ryan, let me start with you. joe biden's comments that he said there at the beginning, saying this isn't going to fundamentally change whether we have a mass shooting or not, sounds similar to wayne lapierre, who you are aware is the head of the nra. listen to him. >> gun control, you could ban all dianne feinsteins, do whatever she wants to with magazines, it's not going to make any kid safer. >> okay. they're buddies now. >> they're not buddies. consider the audience that joe biden was talking to. joe biden is good at making deals on the hill because these talking to these guys as equals. we know what's what, i'm not going to promise you the moon, this might make a little bit of a difference. here's the way policy-making works in general. you have a crisis, you break glass in case of emergency. there's some policy agenda that's been collecting dust on the shelf and you break it out. remember the iraq war, same thing. 9/11 happens, iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, but a lot of people wanted to invade iraq -- so, they thought, hey, this san
fair. >> but fair should be based off of everybody's equal opportunity to compete. >> john: it should be, but of course our government well beyond that. and if government ran sports, what would happen when the ref blew the whistle called a penalty? >> they would say i'm not sure that was a foul. they would analyze every questionable call. >> and there would be 13 committees. >> john: and so on. games could go on for weeks. there would be hearings, litigation, heck, games might go on for years. when instant replay first appeared that almost happened to pro football. the nitpickers in charge to create every close play must be reviewed to make sure it's fair, and why not? there's lots at stake, but that was a disaster. fans were bored. it stopped the momentum of the game. during sunday's sunday's super bowl, coaches will get to challenge close plays but there will being limit no more than six appeals per team and refs may stare at the replay screen for no longer than 60 seconds. in other words a limit on the search for perfect fairness. that works. you set up clear and simple
to john brady at the cme. what reaction did you immediately see? give us the inside scoop, that prism through which you are looking where you said wait a minute this particular reaction is interesting to me. >> liz, earlier in the day, about an hour before the fed came out with their statement, you know, the seven year note was auctioned off right around 1:41 or so, and a bit of a sloppy auction, slightly higher than expected. right on the fed announcement saw that same seven year yield drop immediately to 1.37 1/2 and started to back up a little bit. what you are seeing, the offsets from this, in fixed income land, there are currently two trades, one, move down the credit ladder and try and pick up additional yield or sell volatility. that's the trade that came through immediately after the fed. implied volatility here on exchange and treasury and fixed income products was immediately sold with the idea the fed policy is going to continue at least for the immediate future. liz: we showed the ten year yield at 2.01% there, john brady. if we breach that ceiling and we continue to stay
